Abstract is our take on a modern coffee that works great as a mug of coffee and shines on espresso. Abstract is the coffee that we pull on espresso at the coffee shop, and we designed the blend with espresso in mind. As a regularly brewed coffee, the cup has a silky smooth texture reminiscent of honey along with sweet berry notes. On espresso, Abstract has a thick body with lots of sweetness and citrus acidity on the finish. It also works perfectly for brewing cold brew!
Abstract is one of our foundational blends; it is a blend of Colombia Washed Huila and Ethiopia Natural Guji coffees.
Recommended Usage: Cold Brew, Espresso, Filter Coffee
Additional Info and Transparency
Huila - Castillo, Caturra & Colombia
Colombian coffee is among the most recognizable and most dynamic in the world, with multiple growing regions whose distinct yet consistently crowd-pleasing profiles reflect the various microclimates that exist in this large country. We source workhorse coffees from various of these growing regions, looking for a cup that contains a nice balance of sweetness, fruity effervescence, and a foundation of cocoa and/or toffee. Most Gran Galope offerings are a blend of coffees from between 10 and 30 smallholder farms, each with comparable cup characteristics and score. Coffees from Huila are cupped and purchased in Pitalito; coffees from Cauca are cupped and purchased in Popayán; and coffees from Nariño are cupped and purchased in both Pasto and La Unión.
This coffee was sourced through Cafe Imports, and it was purchased as green coffee at a price point of $4.53 USD/LBS.
Natural Guji - Kedir Hassen at Sibu Trading - Oromia
Buliye station is a drying station that only produces naturally processed coffee. Owned and operated by Kedir Hassen at Sibu Trading that oversees a number of washing and drying stations in Southern Ethiopia, we taste the quality that Kedir and his teams at Sibu Trading put into the processing of the coffee delivered from the neighboring kebeles.
Buliye is one of those coffees that hits all ends of the spectrum for folks looking for natural processed coffees. It’s heavy on the palette, has some dense sweetness and lovely bright berry-like acidity that reminds us of grape and raspberry. This coffee is everything we look for in a natural processed coffee as well. It’s vibrant and dynamic with a very clean structure.
